The Boys’ Universe Won’t Ramp Down, Says Amazon Exec

With Gen V about to debut on Prime Video at the end of the month, The Boys’ cinematic universe continues to grow, and the makers of the hit superhero satire, much like A-Train, have no intentions to slow down. 

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Amazon exec Vernon Sanders outlined what was coming next. “I will say this: Eric has had a vision for what this all leads to for years now, and we’ve been in an ongoing conversation about what comes next.”

“So, it’s probably premature to talk about that beyond saying we believe in Eric, and if Eric is interested in continuing the story, we’ll be the first ones in line to really work with him on what that is. But right now we’re super focused on Gen V and an amazing season 4 of The Boys, which I think is going to blow fans away.”

Later in the interview, Sanders suggested that Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, executive producers on the series, were “genuinely interested” in developing more content for the animated anthology series The Boys Presents: Diabolical.

“I think we’ve been probably the ones who’ve been wanting to be careful not to over expose. So, once we committed to Gen V, we really wanted that to be the next thing out. And once we have it out and get a chance to see how everyone’s reacting to it, we can start talking about, like I said, what comes next.”

For now, we have the arrival of Gen V, a spin-off set within the Godolkin University campus, a place designed to discover the next best superhero talent. “We think that if fans respond the way we’ve responded to Gen V we will have many more seasons of the show,” Sanders explained. “In the master plan between Eric and Michele and Tara, I think these shows will continue to talk to each other in fun ways.”
